Welcome to Bread & Butter.


We're really proud of what we do for our customers here. Locally-roasted coffee, home-baked cakes, vibrant super-salads, generously filled ciabatta rolls, oh and so much more.

And before 12 noon, a stack of the most incredible fluffy American pancakes you'll have ever tasted.

Come and find us at the end of River Street in Truro, just opposite the museum.

We hope to see you soon...

Breakfast and brunch

Forgive the flagrant trumpet-blowing, but it seems people just can't get enough of our fluffy American pancakes.

We think our Origin coffee, home-made brownies, muffins and frittata aren't bad either.

Every day we make - from scratch - frittata using delicious St Mawes eggs and filled with lots of tasty veg.

Plus a couple of vibrant, inventive salads soups, toasted sourdough, our own Alpine potatoes - and mountains of cakes, brownies, muffins and more.

Social distancing baked-in

The five booths in the garden are well segregated from each other to offer a brilliant solution to social distancing in a cafe.

Inside we have four tables in our dining room, set safely apart from each other.

And we take Covid-safety very seriously: sanitising tables religiously between every customer.

Brownies (and more) by post

Well, if you need to say thank-you, well-done, happy birthday (or even sorry!), a box of six of our indulgent brownies will surely do the trick.
